Morning peeps!

Today I'd like to share with you my DT card for the Sunday Sketch & Stamp challenge blog. We're already up to challenge 5, and this fortnight we have Arianne's fab sketch to follow (I've rotated the sketch 90 degrees to the right, and then used it in its mirror-image minus the sentiment):

For this card I decided to dig out my neglected PollyCraft stamps - haven't used these in months! I used the co-ordinating corner stamp from the 'Xtra Set 2' to stamp in the corners of the image plate and then I hand-drew a line to join them up to make a (rather busy!) border! I used the glitter pen on her wings, swirly detail on her clothes and the dot of light reflection on her eyes (you'll have to click to enlarge the pic to see that, LOL!). Then I stuck tiny pink gems in the centres of all the swirls.

I'm not really sure about this one....I think the border is too close to the image, as it just looks too busy, or maybe I should have stamped and cut out the girl image and popped it up for dimension...but tough, as it's done now and it ain't a-changing!! LOL!

I'm going to enter this card into the following 2 challenges:

1. PollyCraft Monday Challenge : Challenge 17 is a recipe challenge, 3 embellishments (flowers, ribbon, gems), 2 papers (yep!) and 1 image (yep!).
2. Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge : Challenge 37 is a colour challenge, pink & green.

Thanks, as always, for popping by folks! Why don't you hop along to Sunday Sketch & Stamp and play along with us this fortnight? We'd love to see you!

Have a great Sunday! TTFN!

Hugs, Sem x
